For my Valentine's Day themed decor project(s) I created a pastel shabby chic Valentine's frame and tea light lantern. I used some lovely patterned paper by KaiserCraft from the "Bonjour" paper collection, some fancy jeweled ribbon, a butterfly sticker also from the "Bonjour" collection to decorate the frame. And for the lantern I used more "Bonjour" paper and some vellum that I picked up at JoAnn's craft store. The paper panels that make up the frame of the lantern and also the swirl butterfly I cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge which is sold exclusively through Close To My Heart. I hope you like it! ~ Enjoy!
